A new trailer has been released for Benjamin Walker’s fictional action-horror take on the life of Abraham Lincoln, in which Rufus Sewell plays the titular president going toe to toe with the undead.
The trailer shows the Vampire slaying president writing his journal, in which the president tells us that we’ve remembered him wrong all this time:
“Whatever history remembers of me,” begins the President, “if it remembers anything at all, it shall only be a fraction of the truth. For whatever else I am, a husband, a lawyer, a president… I shall always think of myself first and foremost as a hunter.”
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter also stars one of our favorite mighty geek babes, Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Final Destination, Scott Pilgrim), and is directed by Timur Bekmambetov. The film will open in the UK on June 20, 2012.
